WHAT IS NATURAL WINE?
It’s just like organic wine, right? In some ways, yes, but natural wine is so much more than that. Just like organic wine, the grapes are grown without the use of artificialchemicals, pesticides and fertilizers. However, natural wine goes one step further. It ensures minimal chemical or technological intervention from ground, to grape, to glass. Natural wine is also fermented with native yeast and minimal sulfites (SO2), an antioxidant that is often the cause of the dreaded headache. Yes, you read that right! Natural wine can help reduce your hangovers. Want more reasons to go raw?

Something You May Wondering About Natural Wine
Is natural wine same as organic wine or biodynamic wine?
While natural wine, organic wine, and biodynamic wine share some similarities, they are not exactly the same.
Natural wine refers to wine that is made from grapes that are grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides, and that is fermented with naturally occurring yeast. The winemaking process is kept as simple and non-interventionist as possible, with NO or minimal use of additives such as sulfites.
Organic wine is made from grapes that are grown without synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, and the winemaking process also follows strict guidelines for the use of additives and processing aids.
Biodynamic wine takes organic practices a step further, incorporating spiritual and metaphysical principles in the vineyard and winery. Biodynamic farming uses specific preparations and practices, such as lunar cycles and astrological influences, to enhance the health and vitality of the soil, plants, and animals. It could also use of additives and processing aids.
So, while all natural wines are organic or biodynamic, not all organic or biodynamic wines are natural. It's important to know which type of wine you're looking for before making a purchase.
Why some natural wines are cloudy?
Natural wines are made without any additives or intervention, which can sometimes result in a cloudy appearance. This is because natural wines are not filtered or fined like conventional wines, so they may retain some of the sediment from the grape skins and seeds. Cloudiness is usually not an indicator of poor quality in natural wine, but rather a sign that the wine has not been manipulated in any way. Many natural wine lovers find it to be a sign of a wine's natural origins and appreciate the unique flavor profile that this can impart. So next time you see a natural wine that's a little cloudy, don't be discouraged - it's just part of the charm.
Are all natural wines vegan friendly?
Conventional wines sometimes use animal-derived products like egg whites, gelatine, fish bladders (isinglass), or casein, which is milk-based, to remove sediment from wine during the fining process. Because natural winemakers do not fine their wine, these wines will always be vegan-friendly. This makes natural wines a great choice for vegans who want to enjoy a glass of wine without having to worry about any animal products being used in the production process. So, if you're looking for a vegan-friendly wine, natural wine is definitely the way to go!
How long I can keep my natural wine after its opened?
It depends on the wine, but most natural wines will last for about 3-5 days after being opened. This is because natural wine does not contain any preservatives, the wine is constantly evolving in the bottle and after its opened. Every sip is unique, natural wine lover finds it’s the most interesting part of drinking natural wine. So, if you plan on drinking natural wine within a few days of opening it, be sure to store it in a cool, dark place to help preserve its flavor and quality. Cheers!
Is natural wine taste different to conventional wine?
Natural wine is made without the use of chemicals or additives, and many people say that it tastes different than conventional wine. Some people have said that natural wine tastes like cider, but this is not necessarily true. Natural wine can have a unique profile of flavor that you won't find in conventional wine. If you're looking for something different in your wine, natural wine is worth a try.
